These were two separate emails from Andy Gold regarding the 2000 reunion.
This first was in response to the logistics of the hotel and venue (Gary Steiner's great LI-Mex restaurant Pancho's Cantina).
The second was in response to his attendance, and the general feeling that non-classmate spouses might not be as interested in attending.
This all sounds great.
Why can't we stay at the motel Amy Fisher and
Joey Buttafuoco stayed
at? Wasn't she in our class? Was that the same
Do we have to order now??
I'll have a western Taco w/ low-fat sour cream
and no-cholesterol jack
cheese. Can I have the Salsa on the side? I don't
mean to be a curmudgeon,
but does Gary have high-fiber, whole wheat Taco
Also, if possible, could
I have ground Turkey instead of ground beef? If
there is no Turkey, I'll
have Ostrich. Also, could that high-fiber Taco
shell I requested be
Now that I think about
it, forget the Salsa (too much acid), but could
you put the filling on a
bed of Mesclun baby salad mix and give me the
high-fiber whole wheat
Taco shell on the side?? Would Gary have Spelt, or
Kelp Taco shells?? You
know something?? Let me have the Taco on rye toast.
Rye toast is nice. Also,
forget the ground turkey, low-fat sour cream and
jack cheese. Also the Mesclun mix has too much fiber
for me. I think I'll have
a soft-boiled egg with my nice rye toast. -2
I'm sorry Bill, I guess
it seems like I have completely forgotten about
the reunion. It's just
that one can't be too careful these days, what with
high cholesterol, bloated
stomach, acid reflux, constipation and high blood
pressure and all.
I really look forward to
seeing everyone. Yes, I will be there, probably
PS Could I get my egg and
toast to go???
If it is OK, I would like
to bring (or have to, as it turns out) a few people with me.
These will be (not in
order of importance, necessarily):
gastroenterologist; Scwabb representative; trainer; tax adviser; corporate tax

all those great different calling plans and carriers; my shrink; the Moil (SP?)

I will be there Friday, but I will need an extra table for 47.
